I'm tried of these immediate rematches. If you lose you lose, next person in line get a chance. Now if there was a draw or questionable stoppage, then fine. However, I want to see someone else getting a crack at the belt

I'm also really tired of immediate rematches for no good reason when other deserving fighters are waiting in line.

Jones won on all the judge's scorecards, and he won on just about every major sportswriter's scorecards as well.

That being said, Gustafsson should probably get another shot in a year or two. It should be a great fight...although its hard to imagine him doing remotely as well the next time around.

Most the time immediate rematches annoy me,but in this case I approve. I see this somewhat like Shogun and Machida. I"m not saying it's exactly like it or that a rematch would go down the same way,but just the possibility wants me to see it.

Yeah, it kind of reminds me of Chael v Andy too. Gus will get another shot in time bc it's what people want to see.

Every time Jones gets hurt in a fight, he's always against rematches lol. Machida hurt him and he doesn't want any part of Machida now. Gus spanked him and according to many Gus won and now he wants none of Gus. Such a great champion, isn't he? Definitely P4P!
